Mitel hopes to secure a greater share of the UCaaS and cloud migration market in EMEA and APAC with the appointment of Rami Houbby to the newly created role of Vice President International Cloud Sales.
Houbby brings 25 years industry experience which kicked off with the building of high speed fibre networks for 3Com and Allied Telesis.
He joins Mitel from BroadSoft where he was Vice President of Cloud (EMEA). In a previous role he was the founding MD of the UK subsidiary of the German group NFON AG.
Houbby, who is based in the UK, reports to Jeremy Butt, Senior Vice President International at Mitel.
“I have been operating in the cloud space for many years, but there has never been a more exciting time to be part of this landscape,” said Houbby.
“Providing customers and channel partners with the choice between public or private cloud, Mitel is playing a major role in supporting the growing trend towards cloud communications and helping businesses reach their full potential, at whatever pace suits them.”
